Recap

Dan takes up his briefing at an aptitude testing facility where he gets a private booth and a tape. He’s informed that Jack Wellman, gangster, is causing a series of “accidents” killing politicians that are anti-Syndicate. Wellman plans to appoint their successors and make sure they are in his pocket, and the IMF must stop him...

Episode Notes
Guest agent: Tino, Wellman's favorite restaurateur. Tino appears to be a non-IMFer brought in for this mission, as he only appears to be working with the IMF because Wellman knows him, and he's highly nervous about working the mission.

The actress who greets Dan at the beginning is uncredited, even in the MI: Dossier book, despite having several lines of dialogue.



Episode Quotes
Receptionist: Mr. Briggs, are you going to finish the aptitude test?
Dan: No, I've decided to stay in the line of work I'm in. Thanks anyway.

Cinnamon: I'm just worried about getting out.
Dan: The Syndicate's never been known to kill a woman.
Cinnamon: There's always a first time.

Cinnamon: What are they going to do when they open the safe and find out it's empty?
Rollin: Whatever they do won't help Wellman.



Episode Goofs
When Rollin spills soup on Vito's right pant leg and suit, the stain is clearly visible. However, by the time Vito arrives upstairs to change, the stain has disappeared.
